Crawling to 26


I need a good margarita today. Like a Monster Margarita that I can share with my favorite girls!
Yesterday was not a good day in my world. After posting The Bad, The Good, and The Ugly – things got a little worse and a little more ugly! To go along with the boot on my right foot, I also now have stitches in my right hand. Actually, on my right thumb to be exact.
The story of my hand is emotionally and physically painful, so I won’t be sharing it here.
Do you know how hard it is to do things one sided? Sucks! When it rains, it pours!
We are 5 days into May, and you probably noticed I have said nothing about my goals. Last months goals got pushed aside when I got my new job. Sad, but true. The first 5 days of May have hit me like a ton of bricks. I am limited to going work and “rest” for the foreseeable future.
So where does that leave me?
Well, I am turning 26 at the end of this month. Honestly, I feel like I am crawling to my 26th Birthday. This year has not been what I thought or hoped it would be.Of all the goals I set for this year, I right now I am proud of a few things:
  1. Finally landing a new job. A good one at that, with room for me to move and grow!
  2. I registered and I am running my first ever 5k on my birthday!
  3. The changes I made while going Vegetarian, even if just for a few weeks.
Finishing the 5k with a smile on my face seems like a pretty huge goal right now, all things considered.
But you know what?
I know I will finish the 5k, because I will have the greatest supports and friends running with me!
I also know I am the only one who can change the amount of success I have this year.
Only I determine mysuccess and failures.My goals for the month of May:
  • Let myself Heal. So I can finish the month healthy and strong!
  • Give myself Time. Use this time to my advantage and reevaluate.


How do you approach birthdays? How do you like to celebrate? 

Do you look it like New Years and make new goals or resolutions? Or is it just another day?

    I like a good birthday resolution! I had one last year, and success was the best bday present I got. My bday’s in November, so I’m currently shopping for my next bday goal. 🙂

    And CONGRATS on the new job – that’s a huge change, and I think your May goals are perfect for it.
